If you tuned in to red carpet coverage for the 2016 Emmy Awards, you already know that Kerry Washington (and her growing baby bump!) looked phenomenal in a flowing black gown. The star was gorgeous, glowing and incredibly comfortable at the event, and she spoke candidly about how she's been feeling throughout her second pregnancy.

The secret to Kerry's enviable bump style? A really talented designer and a customized fit.

"This dress was made for me, obviously, I didn't go into a mall to buy this with a perfect bump," Kerry, who has a two-year-old daughter, Isabelle, told ET of her incredible gown. "Brandon Maxwell made this dress for me. I'm just a fan of his. I love what he's done with Gaga through the years and with the first lady recently, so I'm really honored he made this dress."

Sigh. If only we all had top-notch designers to create one-of-a-kind maternity styles for us like preggo celebrities. Luckily, Kerry proudly wears hand-me-down maternity items from her famous friends when she's not stunning at Hollywood events.

But regardless of how fabulous and happy Kerry appeared, the Scandal star also came clean about the "anxiety" that's affected her this time around. "I'm an only [child] so every time the family grows it uh...it brings up a little bit of anxiety. But it’s fantastic. I'm really happy," she said. Kerry also shared that she won't learn her second baby's sex, and that she would be happy with either outcome. 

How amazing does Kerry look? We'll have to tune in to the upcoming season of Scandal to see how the show addresses this pregnancy—and like Kerry herself, we're anxiously waiting to see if she'll welcome a boy or another girl!
